Lures

Fish will take a fishing fly in to their mouth for a number of reasons;
  • Because it thinks it is food
  • Because it is curious
  • Because it is being aggressive
Lures and attractor fishing flies fall in to the last two categories. A trout fly such as a blob has no resemblance to any living creature on this earth and yet will catch fish. Over the years the line between imitative flies and attractors has become blurred as there are many imitative flies that have tags of bright colour or beads that attract the fish.

Big lure and blob fishing flies are most often used on still waters in the UK where they often account for big aggressive rainbow trout. Lures such as the dog nobbler or zonka also make great fry imitations for when the trout are hunting small fry.
